Local Entities Team Up to Assists Starr Students with "Back to School" Supplies

 Mary Barrera-City of Rio Grande, Cynthia Garcia Fuentes and Judy Solis-County of Starr, Sandra Garcia and Holly Douglass Guerrero-City of Rio Grande were among the volunteers who assisted students to purchase back to school clothing and supplies.  The United Way of South Texas awarded 120 middle school students from all over the valley with $150.00 each for back to school clothing and supplies thanks to employee contributions of many individuals including employees in the County of Starr and the City of Rio Grande.  Volunteers from all over the Rio Grande Valley gathered at the Target on North Tenth on Wednesday August 15th to assist the students in making proper selection of clothing and supplies. Students were also given free haircuts by volunteers from Vogue College.  The students were very excited and eager to buy the much needed items and are now prepared to begin the new school year,  (Starr County Public Relations Office)
